Well they held strong and grew to fill up the planters right up until last week when the dead of the heat wave hit and they succumbed to their ultimate demise:
It was a sad day.
Luckily, we had plans to keep these urn planters fresh with seasonal plants, so we decided it was time to switch things up! On a whim, we decided to try our hand at a little edible landscaping with the planters this go round and transplanted a yellow and red pepper plant into them, then fitted them with two plant cages that we brought over from last year's garden during the move.
So if you're passing by — yeah, that's us — the ones with the big pepper plant planters out front!
Have you delved into any form of edible landscaping or planted vegetable plants out front? This is our first go round (other than our herb box) so we'd love to learn from your experience.
